Flexibility, Heretics, and Love Wins

posted by Jason Boyett

This is the last thing I’m going to write about Rob Bell’s book Love Wins, and it’s not even really about the book. I’ve read the book. I enjoyed parts of it. I was frustrated with parts of it. I […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Right now I’m reading Not That Kind of Girl, a memoir by Carlene Bauer that released in hardback last year from HarperCollins (it just came out in paperback this summer). It tells Carlene’s story of a childhood in evangelical churches, […]

As We Forgive

posted by Jason Boyett

You may have seen the award-winning documentary “As We Forgive” featured on PBS this month. It’s a heartbreaking but hopeful look at the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide — where a million people were slaughtered in 100 days — […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday’s post was not-so-serious, so I’ll balance things out (perhaps karmically?) by calling attention to a book and organization that impresses me. Thistle Farms is a non-profit business operated by the women who live at Magdalene, a two-year residential community […]

Confessions: I Read (and Enjoyed) Twilight

posted by Jason Boyett
